If your action is set low enough that every note mwahs all the time, could that be a bad thing?
Playing technique should be able to adjust for that, along with some tone roll off.
If you want to hear lots of mwah check out a Rick Turner Renaissance bass!
Absolutely there can be too much of it! I'm rather annoyed by "mwah," personally. I'm more of a "blang" fan.
You're right. That does have a lot of mwah!
Is that what you have? I used to own a RB5FL but now I have a RB4FL.
No, I'm using a Jazz Bass. Seemed extra mwah-y tonight.
It's almost Full Mwah, you know?
I just got my John Kallas fretless Jazz back from Michael Pedula, who coated the formerly bare ebony fingerboard. I need more mwah. How can I get that?
Love it! I like mwah in certain situations, but I really like higher action, so I get my mwah when I want it by forcing it out of the notes with a slide or vibrato rather than by letting the instrument do it for me. So, it's more of a growl than a mwah, but who wants to bicker about the definition of those terms?
But too much mwah can be cloying, unless you're doing a recording for the weather channel or Otis Elevator Corp. Well, it's still cloying in that context, but at least it's genre-appropriate.
